5/31/2006 - UConn Waterbury 60th Anniversary Celebration

Join the Celebration





On May 31st UConn Waterbury will continue its observance of the 60th Anniversary of the Waterbury campus and the 125th Anniversary of the University of Connecticut with A Celebration of Lifelong Learning event on the UConn Waterbury campus at 99 East Main Street in Waterbury.


This tribute to a lifelong search for knowledge will begin at 4:00pm in the Multi-purpose room as poet Richard St. John (Lifelong Learning: Poetry & Purpose) explores ways in which real people lead lives of meaning.  Treat yourself to this opportunity to reflect and see the world in new ways.  At 5:10 there will be a program of Highlights of the UConn Faculty.  Find out about the work of a few of the many luminaries at the University such as Walter Woodward, State Historian and Assistant Professor of History at the UConn West Hartford campus.  At 6:15 we’ll gather in the Concourse for light refreshments and an announcement of a new partnership between UConn Waterbury and the Leever Foundation to promote Lifelong Learning in the region.  The evening will conclude with a reading by poet Maya Angelou at the Palace Theater (tickets are required for this event and may be purchased by contacting the Palace box office).


The program promises to be entertaining and provocative. We hope that you will join us as we explore new ways for the University to meet the changing needs of our community.  Please RSVP to 860-570-9106 by May 29th if you plan to attend.
